Dr. Howard removed a lipoma thing from behind my ear, and it was so painless. He explained everything he was going to do before he did it and eased my worries. I would definitely recommend him to any family or friends for any thing.

First time ever having surgery. He explained what he was going to do. How long it was going to take and the recovery time. Was very open and honest with me. Made me feel at ease going into surgery.
